If only that were true... the weather does not appear to have gotten the memo that it is officially spring, and is merrily handing out winter temperatures and even some predicted snow for later today. While I greet snow with glee in November and December, by late March, I'd rather that it get out of the way and let in the spring.
But in any case -- brace yourselves, O readers -- today's blog post will be on the topic for the weekday! Yes, it's Trycanta Tuesday, and I have in fact been writing Trycanta! Not just Friday's little flash fiction (which, thank you for your response), but an actual short story, which may well get me into one of the other continents' novel series.
I know what you're thinking. I can practically hear the eye-rolling. (It's a big sister thing.) "But Anne, you already have two open novel series, including one set on Trycanta! Why do you need another one? Why don't you do some work on Playing with Fire, or Snowball if you just have to write humans and dragons and cats oh my?"
As I have said before, O readers, writing begets writing. And right now, with the emo-coaster warming up for another run, I'm happy to be doing any kind of writing. Snowball and PwF are percolating away in the back of my head, yes, and I'm hoping to get a few words down on them fairly soon, but if this is hot now, I'm going for it.
Besides, this new and as yet untitled story is about mazor, or partly so. Which means it could well appear in Here Be Dragons, my second book of short stories. And once I have a nice long anchor piece for that, my author-senses will start tingling. Fill the pages, Anne. Trust your instincts. (Mixing geeky metaphors. My life amuses me.)
In other news, my writing has finally landed over at Scribd, and I would really appreciate a few more views to boost me out of the basement over there! Please? Pretty please with stories on top? As I mentioned in this morning's Tweet, I do have some fanfic ideas percolating as well, so you could be rewarded fairly soon...
But all of that will come when it comes. For now, I had better sign off, with wishes that you, O readers, have a pleasant and productive and generally awesome day. And, for anyone in my neck of the woods, stay warm! Spring's coming... I hope! Thanks, as always, for reading, and fingers crossed for more good writing news on Thursday!
